Other Notes: We normally have about 20 students with us on camp, of varying ages and always great fun. If we have more students, we have more staff facilitating the camp. We work of the Adult to Child ratio of 1:7 students. Students are to meet with a Quest Skills for Life guide at Southern Cross Train Station in the Morning of the first day of camp to catch run introduction and icebreakers, then we board the train/bus as a group to our Destination. Departing from Southern Cross we then travel to Stawell Railway Station for our camp meeting at the Old Heritage Stawell Railway Gallery. From there we charter a Shuttle Bus to the Brambuk Cultural Centre and National Park, in which we are based for the week. The theme of the Dreamtime Quest 6 Day School Holiday Camp is like all of our camps where students are the 'owners' of their camp experience, they will be given a task over the camp program to lead and manage their team (with the guidance of Quest Skills for Life facilitators) as they take on roles relating to the Grampians history and theme of Aboriginal Culture, having fun and learning! All students will need to bring their Myki with them for their camp with sufficient credit. Quest Skills for Life staff can purchase Myki Travel Credit at the students parent(s) or caregivers expense. The Myki is used for travel at certain stages of camp.
